What I love about this ad is how angry it makes conservatives. They just can’t handle the fact that their guy, Obama’s “predecessor who must not be named,” had 7 years after 9/11 to get bin Laden and failed, miserably. Obama got the job done.
John McCain is now saying that Obama pointing out that he killed bin Laden and that Mitt Romney would have done something differently is using 9/11 to divide America, or something. The guy who was nominated at this convention:
Yeah, um, he says the Democrats are misusing 9/11. Okay.
To be clear, it is absolutely proper for President Obama to present evidence of competence when asking to be re-elected. And it is absolutely proper to show a clear distinction between himself and Mitt Romney on this issue. Mitt Romney criticized Obama in 2007 when he said he would go into Pakistan to get bin Laden. Mitt Romney said he wouldn’t do it. That’s a valid consideration and should be raised.
Also, whenever Republicans are whining about tone, they know they’re losing.
